Clover Stroud Talks to Cathy Rentzenbrink

26 May @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm

Clover Stroud talks to Cathy Rentzenbrink

What is it that makes a home? What is a home without the roots that tie you to a place? What is a home when a family is split?

Clover Stroud discusses her new, profound and moving book, The Giant on the Skyline with Cathy Rentzenbrink, in which she examines the meaning of home and what it means to her.

Clover’s eldest children are leaving home for university. Her husband Pete’s work is in America. The only way for Clover and the younger children to live with him is to uproot, leave their rural life near the ancient Ridgeway, understand a little of the history of her landscape and work out why it is that it is so hard for her to go. In doing so she paints a beautifully layered portrait of family, community and of belonging in a landscape that has drawn people to it for generation after generation.
